A vibrant future and an empowered past

Here at Shiloh Old Site, we are thankful for both an empowered past and a vibrant future. Since 1854, we have gathered faithfully for worship and service on this historic site "down by the riverside" in Fredericksburg, Virginia, surrounded by a courageous "cloud of witnesses."
